A power outage Thursday knocked out electrical service to several hundred customers in the Monterey area, the second such incident in two days.
Pacific Gas & Electric Co. spokesman Jeff Smith said PG&E had received several calls from customers about an outage Wednesday that left thousands of customers, including stores in Del Monte Center, without power for up to four hours.
“When a power outage affects that many customers, it’s not unusual to receive complaints,” he said.
Weather was calm those days. Just wait until the rainy weather starts, and dead pine trees that won’t get cut down start to fall.
